Dancing With The Stars Ricki Lake's Samba & Argentine Tango Performance Videos 11/14/11

Enjoy tonight’s Ricki Lake’s Samba & Argentine Tango Performance Videos. On tonight’s ninth episode and the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars couples will have to impress the audiences with three routines.  The competition is nothing short of intense tonight, with everyone wanting to get into the finals.  If you missed tonight’s show you can read our official recap here!  If you missed her performance last week you can watch the video here!

The couples first performance is an Argentine Tango, their second dance is either a Paso Doble or Samba — one of which is a style dance they have not yet performed.  The third dance will be the Cha Cha relay, in which all couples will dance to the same song.

The dances Ricki Lake and professional dancer Derek Hough will be performing are the Samba to I Go to Rio by Peter Allen, Argentine Tango and Cha-Cha.  Ricki has been suffering from sharp chest pains for more than a week as a result of an inflamed nerve, something her doctor says suggested she take two weeks off to recover from.  Although Ricki claims she is a workhorse, the three new dances could be difficult for her.

Ricki is a frontrunner in the competition and she recently said she cannot believe she has made it so far. She said, “It’s become less about winning and more about, ‘Wow! I can’t believe I’m still here!‘   If you want to vote for Ricki her voting number is 1-800-868-3411.
